ABPCO Excellence Awards 2022

Recognising and celebrating industry best practice in association and not for profit conferences and events

The ABPCO Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate industry best practice in association and not for profit conferences/events.    They are an opportunity to showcase to your peers, and the wider industry the incredible work that is being undertaken in this sector, and the positive impact that it has.

When: 08-09th December

We’re heading to Birmingham and are extremely grateful to the ICC for sponsoring our annual celebration event of the year!

Thursday 8th December

6pm – Networking drinks followed by supper - We’re kicking off the celebrations with a welcome drink at the Leonardo Royal Hotel Birmingham from 6pm. This will be followed by a networking supper at 7pm at the Library of Birmingham on Centenary Square. This unique venue, part of Unique Venues Birmingham, will provide the perfect setting for ABPCO members to re-connect before the awards the following day.

Friday 9th December

10am – Legacy session – We’re delighted to host a morning learning session prior to the awards, in Hall 4 at the ICC,  featuring a panel and time for discussion. After a summer of hosting sporting excellence at the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham will be the perfect location to delve deeper into the topic.   The expert panel will be Andy Phillips - Head of Research at West Midlands Growth Company, Helen Davidson - Sales Manager at Glasgow Convention Bureau, Jenni Yau - Senior Association Account Manager at ICC Belfast, and Adrian Evans, Assistant Director - Conference & Exhibition Sales at ACC Liverpool.  The panel will be chaired by Martin Fullard.

Birthplace to the industrial revolution, cultural hotspot and international sporting stage, Birmingham has a lot to offer all within the walkable city centre. This walking tour tells the story of the city through its eclectic mix of stunning historic buildings and innovative architecture.

12 – 4pm – Excellence Awards – The main event will bring us all together to recognise and celebrate excellence, best practice and the best in our industry.
